Amazon Prime's New Series 'Hanna' Will Be Your New Obsession

Now we've finally finished binging on Killing Eve, it's about time we had another bad ass female assassin in our lives and it looks like Amazon Prime's Hanna is offering exactly that.

The streaming giant is releasing a series adaptation of the 2011 thriller movie of the same name and it's set to become our new obsession.

Esme Creed-Miles will step into the role of pint-sized assassin raised by her father to be a killer, previously played by Saorise Ronan.

Amazon Prime has just released the first trailer of the adaptation series offering the first glimpse of the unlikely teen assassin and it looks incredible.

The teaser, which is titled 'Fugitive Fakeout' follows a suspicious looking man throughout from European city while following a young girl described on a radio as "Escaped asset is extremely dangerous. Trained to kill and engineered to survive at all costs."

When the man catches up with the girl and attempts to grab her, she turns and beats him before the woman continues: "Her name is Hanna, bring her in alive."
